    It doesn't have to be a hard part failuire. You could have a vacuum line disconnected, or an air intake leak somewhere, causing an inordinate amount of air to get into the engine, causing it to starve for fuel comparitively. A good engine performance technician can get to the bottom of it probably fairly efficiently.

    What you can do: check for any disconnected or leaking hoses under the hood (air / vacuum) and you may find something...

    Conversely - sure, it could have a fuel pressure or supply issue also.

    Thank you for your reply and this makes more sense then what some other people where I live have told me. It's really strange because it has stopped doing that then it did it like once or twice and no more so you are probably right. We'll have to have someone check it out.
